ONIONS- a quick and easy timesaver

This is so simple that I feel silly writing this post, but given that it took me years and years of cooking to figure this out, I thought it worth a share. OK, so I try to buy larger onions now….it is easy to do so at Costco- but what I realized is this. When you need some onion, cut up the whole large onion. Put what you don’t need in a glass or plastic container with a lid in the fridge. You can also use a plastic baggy, but glass with a lid works best. Whenever you need some chopped onion, it is there. If you are a cook, chances are you will need onion at least a couple of times a week. So, rather than rooting around the vegetable bin for a half, unpeeled onion, which often gets lost and then becomes very special, just peel the whole thing, cut the whole thing, and save what you don’t need. It takes very little time and your hands get oniony just once.
